I like the picture, I would like it better cropped a little closer on the sides and a little more room on top...nice capture...

Great timing, with his feet in the air. I like the composition and the backlighting too. I think a little more space at the top would have eliminated that illusion of the skateboarder hanging on to the frame to support himself.

Good action I think maybe I would have cropped it more or maybe taken the shot from the other side

The subject itself is interesting but he's mostly centered in the shot and everything that surrounds him is pretty dull. I'd say get in closer and make him fill up as much of the frame as you can manage to avoid including so much of the uninteresting background. And if you've got enough resolution to play with, I'd consider cropping it closer as well.

Not terribly interesting in a photographic sense.

Nice motion capture but more attention needs to be paid to background and position of elements in it. In this case I feel that the position of the post on the opposite pavement (UK for sidewalk) interrupts the outline of the skateboarder. I think composition also needs attention - this might work better in portrait and would benefit from additional space at the top to balance that at the bottom and ensure the skater's hand were not chopped off.

Perhaps this photo would have looked better with a portrait orientation. The excess on each side of the individual is distracting. 5

Good capture. Maybe a tighter crop to draw more attention to the boy-while the top where his hand is looks too tight. :0) <?>

I might have gone vertical on this instead of horizontal. Otherwise, good catch of the action. Nice shot.

Good capture. I'd like this one better a little less centered with entire shadow in the frame.

Certainly has the action. Would have liked some cropping on the sides.

This is a good action shot. I realize it is difficult to control the backround in a captured shot but I find the telephone poll and the bottom of the house above distracting. I think I would have liked your picture better if the entire shadow was included.

Great shot. Only suggestions would be to shoot the front of the skater and get the skater while they were fully in the air.
